or george bush. >> kroft: since the benghazi tragedy, your opponent has attacked you as being weak on national defense and weak on foreign policy. he says you need to be more aggressive in iran, haven't done enough to support the revolt in syria, and that our friends don't know where we stand and our enemies think we're weak. >> obama: well, let's see what i've done since i came into office. i said i'd end the war in iraq. i did. i said that we'd go after al qaeda. they've been decimated in the fatah. that we'd go after bin laden. he's gone. so, i've executed on my foreign policy, and it's one that the american people largely agree with. so, if governor romney is suggesting that we should start another war, he should say so. >> kroft: we'll be back with president obama and governor romney in a moment. when you lost the thing you can't believe you lost.. when what you just bought, just broke. or when you have a little trouble a long way from home... as an american express cardmember you can expect some help. but what you might not expect, is you can get all this with a prepaid card.
